About the Marantz PM6007
A rock-solid amplifier
A rock-solid amplifier
Marantz has been making this type of rugged, versatile integrated amp for years now, but they never rest on their laurels. The PM6007 builds on the legacy of its predecessors, upgrading the built-in 24-bit/192kHz digital-to-analog converter to ensure accurate, detailed playback of digital sources. And HDAM3 analog audio circuitry delivers faster signal transfer and better transient response.
The PM6007 has plenty of back-panel connections for analog sources — five stereo RCA inputs, including a dedicated phono input for turntables with moving magnet cartridges. And there are two optical digital inputs and a single coaxial digital input for digital sources. A new filter mode lets you tailor the DAC's output to suit your listening preference.

FeaturesAudio-Grade Sound Parts & Expert Tuning: Marantz maintains a steadfast reputation for choosing the best possible components for its Hi-Fi products, and the PM6007 is built with that same performance-first Hi-Fi approach. Marantz engineers selected and improved the PM6007 versus the previous PM6006 through extensive listening in dedicated Marantz facilities in Europe and Japan using Hi-Fi tuned sound parts. For example, increasing the size of the power supply capacitors by 20% improved stability during high demand listening sessions. Engineered and extensively tuned by a team drawing on more than 65 years of Hi-Fi expertise, the PM6007 provides exceptional performance for your digital or analog music collection.
Marantz HDAM-SA3 Technology: Marantz has developed their own discrete circuit boards to replace standard IC's. These HDAM's (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) consist of discrete surface mount components with short mirror image L/R signal paths. These devices do exactly the same thing as the Op-amps, but outperform these solutions dramatically in terms of the Slew Rate and reduced noise level, resulting in more dynamic, accurate and detailed sound. In the PM6007, the HDAM-SA3 circuit improves on its previous module and the idling current stability is less influenced by power transistor temperatures to maintain sound performance even at high level output.
Current Feedback Amplifier: The Current Feedback Amplifier technology provides wide-bandwidth and high-speed sound reproduction. In combination with the high current power supply, the PM6007's amplifier section holds a large energy reserve to easily drive even the most demanding speakers. An advanced thermal compensation avoids memory distortion for clean amplification under any circumstances. The PM6007 integrated current feedback amplifier is rated at 45 watts 2 channels (into 8 ohms, @ 20Hz-20kHz, with 0.08% THD) or 60 watts x 2 channels (into 4 ohms, @20Hz-20kHz, with 0.08% THD)ence.
High Current Power Supply with Toroidal Transformer: The power supply supports high current, high speed Shottky Barrier Diodes and high current storage capacitors fed by a Toroidal Transformer that together provide wide dynamic range and low impedance drive capability. A Toroidal Transformer has several advantages over a normal EI core transformer. The highly efficient design delivers more power compared to the same size EI core transformer. In addition, the shape of the Toroidal Transformer delivers low electromagnetic radiation and mechanical vibration for better sound quality.
Reference Quality DAC with Selectable Filters: The PM6007 features a new Hi-Res D/A conversion. It is equipped with a reference class AK4490 D/A converter, which provides up to 24-bit/192kHz resolution for optimum fidelity with your Hi-Res audio file types. The PM6007 introduces a new digital filter for its Optical and Coaxial inputs. This two-mode filter (Filter1/Filter2) allows optimized reproduction of digital music content using the AK4490 D/A converter to your taste. Filter 1 is a slow roll-off preset that improves deep stereo imaging and Filter 2 is a sharp roll-off filter for more precise imaging reproduction.
Tone Controls + Source Direct: You can manually adjust the integrated amplifier's Bass (50Hz) and Treble (15kHz) from -10dB to +10dB. You can also adjust the balance (L/R) of the connected speakers. In addition, there is a Source Direct function which ensures the shortest signal path and upmost fidelity by bypassing the tone and balance control circuitry for a straight path, delivering elevated sound purity.
Analog Line-Level Inputs/Output: The Marantz PM6007 integrated amplifier features four stereo RCA line-level analog inputs (labeled "CD", "Network", "Tuner" and "Recorder"), plus one stereo RCA line-level analog output.
MM Phono Input: The Marantz PM6007 integrated amplifier features a high-quality phono stage, leveraging the newly designed circuit introduced with the Marantz PM7000N - one that integrates a FET (field-effect transistors) in the input stage. This technology delivers high input impedance, eliminates the need for AC coupling capacitors, simplifies the signal path, and lowers distortion and noise which vastly improves the overall signal purity. The phono input supports turntables with a MM (moving magnet) cartridge installed.
Optical & Coaxial Digital Inputs: One coaxial (RCA) digital and two optical (toslink) digital inputs are available to connect digital devices and play back Hi-Res audio (up to 24-bit/192kHz PCM) through the PM6007's advanced audio circuitry. The complete digital section is fully shielded by an extra metal housing unit to ensure that the digital stage has no effect on the analogue signal.
Note: The optical & coaxial digital inputs do not support Dolby Digital, DTS, or other multichannel audio formats.
A & B Binding Post Speaker Terminals: Equipped with A & B speaker terminals, the PM6007 can drive two pairs of speakers, or it can be connected to one pair of bi-wiring compatible speakers, with one set of terminals for the low range drivers and the other set connected to the high range drivers The PM6007 is outfitted with eight gold-plated binding post terminals for long life and optimum signal transfer integrity. The binding posts will accept bare-wire (up to 10AWG), pin-connectos, and banana plugs (single or dual). Use 4 to 8-ohm speakers when powering only one pair of speakers. Use 8-ohm speakers when powering two pair of speakers.
1/4" Headphone Jack: The Marantz PM6007 integrated amplifier features a front-panel 1/4" headphone jack to plug in your set of headphones. The integrated amp's connected speakers and sub out will automatically mute when headphones are plugged in.
Subwoofer Output: The Marantz PM6007 integrated amplifier supports an optional external subwoofer with a fixed low pass cut off frequency at 150Hz. Enjoy accurate bass with no audible peaks or dips, no matter where you place your subwoofer.
Remote Control: Featuring an easy to use ergonomic design, the elegant remote control can also be used to control the matching CD6007 CD player (sold separately). Remote input and output terminals (mono-RCA) let you connect the PM6007 to other Marantz components (such as the matching CD6007 CD player) for synchronized control. The The IR flasher port (3.5mm) lets you connect the PM6007 to an external IR remote repeater system in case the PM6007 is out of sight inside a cabinet.
Protection Circuit: The PM6007's Protection Circuit prevents damage to devices within the power supply when an abnormality such as an overload, excess voltage occurs or over temperature for any reason. If a malfunction occurs in this unit, the power indicator blinks red and the unit switches to standby mode.
Auto Standby Mode: With the Auto Standby Mode "On", this unit will automatically enter the Auto Standby Mode after approximately 30 continuous minutes of no output from the speakers or headphones.
